Visual Forms of Knowledge Production
Mara Ambrožic & Angela Vettese (Eds.)
What is the contemporary relationship between art and thought, and how do we teach art today? This book compiles papers from an eponymous symposium at IUAV University of Venice in June 2011 by theoreticians, curators, scientists, writers and artists variously involved in the teaching of art. The contributions follow the increasing interest in art schools and the prominence gained by their joint exhibition spaces, the evidence of art practices and, accordingly, the diffusion of an extensive literature discussing art schools as a resource and potential alternative to commercial dynamics now shaping the system of contemporary art. Featuring texts from Ute Meta Buaer, Franco “Bifo” Berardi, Mary Jane Jacob, Sarat Maharaj, Henk Slager, Hito Steyerl, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Chiara Vecchiarelli and Mick Wilson, among others.
